Buddy & the Squids release Adrift

Alabama is a hotspot for instro music. Louisiana is... well, it has some. Mississippi, to my knowledge, has Buddy & the Squids. This is the second release by the lone Mississippi group, and it's more ambitious than their last, with a progressive Mermen-ish sound to it. Unfortunately shortly after the release of this record the band has geographically split up, with their drummer Daniel Guaqueta heading up to California (where he tells me he's been hanging with The Mermen's guitarist Jim Thomas), and the bassist is in Kansas. The guitarist remains in Mississippi and they intend to remain together despite their distances.

You can grab this one on  as well as iTunes and Amazon MP3. And while we're talking Squids, any of y'all played that game Splatoon? Loving it!
